Martha Catherine Stafford passed away peacefully on February 16, 2024.Martha was born on February 27, 1932 in Giles County, Tennessee to William Luther and Ruby Claire Cooper Felker. She resided in Stockton Valley, Tennessee with her husband, Gene, until his passing. Together they raised six children on their family farm. A farm where they would later gather every Sunday after church for lunch with their many grandchildren and great grandchildren.Martha was a dedicated member of Stockton Valley Baptist Church, and regardless of the church event, you could always find her in “her” spot on her favorite pew. She most enjoyed doting on her large family and many dear friends, perfecting her beautiful yard, and preparing food for anyone in the community that needed a home cooked meal. Martha was blessed to spend her last year at Morning Pointe of Athens in her room with a view where she was loved on by the staff, and where she made many good friends.

Mize, and Geraldine Leaf.

She is also survived by her twelve grandchildren Jennifer Pinkston, Joshua Stafford, Kelly McGraw, Kerrie Cunningham, Brent Stafford, Emily Perry, Tyler Stafford, Aubrey Kilby, Ross Stafford, Laura Roberts, Rachel Kraft, and Elizabeth Crowder as well as her 26 great-grandchildren.
